Y&R Star Supports DANCING Pal!


Yep, that was Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) in the audience of ABC's DANCING WITH THE STARS on Monday night. The Emmy winner and best friend Denice Duff (ex-Amanda) were there to cheer on their pal, Kirstie Alley (CHEERS; VERONICA'S CLOSET), who's earning rave reviews and high scores for her routines with pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

"She's amazing," Stafford raves to _Soaps In Depth _about her friend. "She looks like a beautiful, svelte, hot piece of ass."

Celebrity audience members have often turned out to be contestants on future seasons of DANCING, and there's even been a few ABC Daytime stars vying for the mirrorball trophy in the past. Would Stafford like to be considered for the top-rated dance competition series? "Of course!" she enthuses.
